Metalogix Replicator 7.4 - Configuring SFTP with Metalogix Replicator

Determine which Web Front-end Servers Require Manual Configuration

If you are configuring Replicator in a single-server farm, then there are no additional tasks to perform. When you click OK on the Configure Web Application page, Replicator automatically configures the farm, regardless of UAC.

If you are configuring Replicator in a multiple-server farm, then you may need to perform additional tasks to configure any of the web front-end servers not running Central Administration for replication. For the purposes of this document, we consider all servers running the SharePoint Web Application service to be a web front-end server. These steps must be performed after clicking OK on the Configure Web Application page.

The following diagram and table illustrate some typical SharePoint and Replicator topologies and specifies which web front-end servers you need to manually configure.

The following table explains which web front-end servers in these topologies require manual configuration.
